New research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer ProtectionConPolicy launches project on the optimization of privacy-consent

Although the vast majority of consumers sets great importance on online-privacy, they do not or rarely read privacy statements. Several studies find that this can be explained by the length and difficulty of privacy statements. These results raise the urgent question of how decision environments for privacy consent processes should be designed in order to better allow consumers informed consent.

The project is implemented from August 2016 until November 2017 and aims at developing and validating concrete recommendations to support consumers’ informed consent. Among other work packages, ConPolicy plans to conduct behavioral experiments.
